If nations don’t have strong defense, US won't leave them alone: Supreme Leader

If nations don’t have strong defense, US won't leave them alone: Supreme Leader

Tehran (ISNA) - The joint graduation ceremony for the cadets studying in the academies of the Islamic Republic of Iran's Armed Forces, was held on Monday by way of a videoconference between the Commander-in-Chief of the Armed Forces, Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei and the commanders and certain military units who were present in the event.

The event was held in Imam Ali (pbuh) Officer’s Academy with only a number of the exemplary units from the Islamic Republic of Iran’s Army, Guard Corps and Police in attendance due to special conditions caused by the prevalence of Covid-19.

The following is an excerpt of the statements Ayatollah Khamenei made in his speech in this ceremony:

"Studying in the academies of our Armed Forces is one of the most noble and valuable acts. Why? Because the Armed Forces ensure the country’s security. Security is a vital element. Without it, all other important values such as education, justice, welfare and the like are disrupted."

"In addition to ensuring security, our Armed Forces carry out other important tasks in serving the nation, both infrastructural and in the health services. In the case of COVID-19, the Armed Forces have truly come forward."

"The three pillars of Iran’s National Strength: 1) Economic stability; 2) Cultural consolidation and consistency; 3) Defense power. If nations do not have defense power, aggressors like the U.S. and others won’t leave them at ease. You can see how today some countries are attacked."

"At times enemy conceals its military threat to take by surprise, at times it exaggerates its threat 10x over to scare its target. One should see a threat in its true size. We must also identify and strengthen our own potentials. “Prepare against them what force you can,” Quran 8:60."

"These American thugs and prattlers who talk recklessly and illogically, spread propaganda about our missile facilities and regional capabilities that are in progress with precise calculations. This propaganda and commotion stem from their backwardness in rational thinking."

"We have economic problems that are all resolvable. The remedy to these problems is relying on domestic production and removing loopholes such as smuggling, reckless imports, and financial corruption. These loopholes prevent the efforts made from achieving the desired results."

"The US President happily says that by imposing maximum pressure and sanctions, they have disrupted Iran’s economy. Only reprobates like him take pride in committing crimes against a nation."

"The US government’s malicious sanctions are a crime in the true sense of the word. Of course, we resist and confront them, and God willing this maximum pressure will lead to the maximum disgrace of the U.S. With God’s grace, we will make them regret."
